French Foliage for CCMC222

Greetings Stampers, and another Happy Monday to you! I hope you all had a great weekend. Mine went by in such a blur I can barely remember what I did! I think my highlight was installing new CD storage cubes in my craft area to house all my clear mount stamps. An awesome friend put them together for me. Love them! When I get a little more cleaned up I'll post some new craft room photos for you.

The inspiration for this card is the Create With Connie and Mary Color Challenge for this week. This is such a fresh combination for an autumnal card, and also great for a masculine card. I had the French Foliage Stamp Set in mind right away when I saw the colors.

I kept the details simple. A ribbon slide is the perfect embellishment for the Stitched Satin Ribbon without being fussy. The simple striped designer paper is from the Neutrals Stack. The greeting from Petite Pairs was cut out with the 1" Circle Punch, and framed with cardstock cut with the 1 1/4" Circle Punch.
